The Rise and Fall of the Confederate Government, Volume 1b


Published February 2, 2014


LibriVox recording of The Rise and Fall of the Confederate Government, Volume 1b by Jefferson Davis.
Read in English by volunteer readers.

The Rise and Fall of the Confederate Government (1881) is written by Jefferson Davis, former President of the Confederate States of America during the American Civil War. Davis wrote the book as a straightforward history of the Confederate States of America and as an apologia for the causes that he believed led to and justified the American Civil War.

Davis spared little detail in describing every aspect of the Confederate constitution and government, in addition to which he retold in detail numerous military campaigns. Far more compelling in the views of Davis' contemporaries and to modern scholars were Davis' thoughtfully constructed arguments as to the constitutional and moral justification of the formation of the Confederacy and of the Civil War. Davis cited numerous constitutional passages, constitutional scholars, and American political leaders to prove his thesis that secession was justified.

This project contains the second half of Volume 1 (of 2). (Intro modified from Wikipedia)
